. >> hello, ohio! >> god bless ohio. >> reporter: president obama and mitt romney's campaigns are practically camped out here. and each candidate has made multicity tours of the state just this week. winning ohio is critical for both. but because of the electoral mass, it's much more so for romney. whose victory may well depend on the state's 18 electoral votes. david cohen is a professor of political skoins at the university of ago ron. >> no republican has ever taken the white house without taking the state of ohio. and only a couple times has a democrat done so. to clearly it is an important state. >> reporter: but also a complex one. the two driving forces of growth here play into the messages of both campaigns. mr. obama points to his administration's auto rescue for saving jobs. and romney emphasizes the need for domestic energy production as an economic engine for the area. >> we've had a lot of positive economic news over the last couple of months. and so the question is, is it too close to the election to really make an impact on people's votes? or are people still kind of weighing t
and a center piece of mr. obama's campaign. former president bill clinton who will visit ohio next week with the president pointed to the plant's success as this summer's democratic party conventions in charlotte. >> the auto industry restructuring worked. it saved-- it saved more than a million jobs, and not just at gm, chrysler and their dealerships, but in auto parts manufacturing all over the country. >> reporter: today the lords town plant churns ou the chevrolet cruz, the country's best selling compaq car, to meet demands it's gone from one shift a day to three, and round-the-clock production. dave green is president of the local united auto workers union. >> but the whole economy will benefit from this because our parts suppliers, the people who work there are out shopping at the stores, they are paying tacks, you know, they're investing in their community. >> reporter: the auto industry employs one out of every eight workers in the state. youngstown is the largest city in the region and reaped many of the benefits. it's not just auto breathing new life into northeast ohio. in yo
. >> and obama at 50, not at 47%. >> and obama is at 50% in ohio, willie. >> one other note inside that "new york times" poll, conventional wisdom is obama would struggle with white working-class voters in ohio anyway, not in virginia. but in ohio he's even with romney among white voters who do not have a college degree. that's very important. >> and by the way, i think he's up, what, 30% in florida? >> 30. >> he's up 30 points, willie, in florida among white voters. but in ohio, he's dead even. >> dead even. florida and virginia. >> and virginia. >> 30 points. >> think about how much of the negative bain advertising took place this summer you still see it in the numbers, doesn't care about people like me. romney's numbers are still upside down. people say governor romney doesn't care about people like them. that is still the result of a summer of pummeling in ohio by the obama campaign and the democratic super pacs which worked ohio harder, knowing that the state could be a firewall, knowing that they could hold the electoral map and take ahold of ohio. they hit him harder there than anywhe anyw
clear politics" average of the most recent polling in the state of ohio shows president obama ahead in ohio by 2.3 points. these "real clear politics" averages are an imperfect measure. i want to give you a very rough idea of how basically how close it is right now. that's what it is in ohio. in virginia, that same polling average has mitt romney ahead by 0.5 points, and in north carolina, the polling average has mr. romney ahead by 3.8 points. so that's the 7:00 hour. and then in the 8:00 hour, polls will be closing in these 18 states. of these states, again, there will be three that we're going to be watching most closely. florida, pennsylvania, and new hampshire. the "real clear politics" polling average right now in florida has romney ahead. in pennsylvania the polling average says it is president obama who's ahead by 4.6 points. in new hampshire, again, president obama ahead with a 1.3 lead. that's the 8:00 hour. at 9:00, we'll have polls closed in all those places, and the blinking states here will be the ones that are closing. 14 states mostly in the midwest and the south. of
in ohio. president obama canceled events in virginia and colorado. he'll do one last rally in florida today before heading back to washington. on sunday the president met with fema, the federal emergency management agency overseeing the government's plans to help states and cities. >> anything they need, we will be there. we're going to cut through red tape. we're not going to get bogged down with a lot of rules. >> reporter: in florida the president told campaign workers turnout is the key. >> whoever is able to get their voters out, they're the one whose are going to win florida. >> reporter: that could be tough in states where sandy is headed. maryland already canceled early voting today. virginia, a battleground state could see power outages lasting until election day. >> several months ago we had the largest -- third largest power outage in history but we got everything pretty much back on in seven days. we're not expecting that this time. >> reporter: virginia is already planning to extend its hours for absentee voting. those absentee votes could be critical. it's believed that
is not reflected in the new cnn poll. it is where it was a couple weeks ago. president obama hangs on to ohio and many believe he will hang on and be re-elected to a second term. this is not by a lack of trying by both candidates to win over last-minute votes and they are doing it to spend an incredible amount of money. $177 million buying television time, much of that money spent right here in northern ohio. we should point out in the cleveland market in 2008, total campaign ads, television time, $36 million. in 2010, it was up to $44 million spent. so far, we are at $88 million in cleveland alone. some say it's closer to $97 million and we've still got a way to go. 400% increase over two2008. the cost of a commercial in the 6:00 news is up over 400% in this market. i'll leave you with one other fascinating fanth. if you took all the political commercials that ran in the cleveland market since the beginning of october and ran them back-to-back you'd sit down and watch them for four and a half days straight. back to you, victor and christi. >> thank you. >>> speaking about polling, that could

2012 coverage. at a nighttime rally in colorado ohio romney told supporters president obama is not the man to lead the country for another four years years. >> you see he's reelected you're going to have the status quo. he calls it forward, i call it forewarned. >> romney is off to florida while ryan continues to campaign in ohio. >> it's always america is in decline, america is not in decline, you're in denial. >> reporter: as for the democrats, vice president joe biden hit the trail in ohio, president obama spent the day in washington, d.c. >>> and coming up in eight minutes we sit down with a group of northern california voters, what's on their minds as they pick a president and help shape the future of the nation. >>> more bad news tonight for hockey fans what we've learned about plans for a full nhl season. the giants in detroit later in sports what ryan vogelsan had to say about starting tomorrow in game three. >> i'm going to have the forecast for game three, i think you're going to be surprised on how cool the temperatures are going to be and of >>> developing news
in these two counties. that's really important to them. the obama campaign in ohio is telling me they're just basically worried about snow in cleveland on election day because that would drive down their turnout a little bit. they really want to get those numbers out. >> i want to switch gears here for a second meghan mccain. let's talk about the day after the winner is decided. let's go with that. what happens if governor romney loses this thing. what happens to the gop. what type of republican party are we going to see emerge if mitt romney loses the presidential election? >> listen, i'm still hoping for the best that mitt romney will win. i have great faith that i actually do think mitt romney will win in this election cycle. all that being said, anything can happen. i know that just as much as anyone else. if governor romney loses, we're going to have to start reassessing where we are as a party. as your commentator said earlier, statements bied to aiken and mourdock, i don't believe they'll define the election. i think they're hurting our relationship with young women voters specifically
more frayed. >>> four days to go, president obama arrives in ohio overnight and governor romney heads there as well as both camps brace for this morning's all-important jobs report and the impact of sandy looms large over election day. >>> and walk this way. new yorkers in need of a lift are about to get one on our plaza. the countdown has begun for aerosmith's first ever morning show concert today, friday, november 2nd, 2012. >>> from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >>> and good morning. welcome to "today" on a friday morning. i'm matt lauer. >> good morning, everyone. i'm savannah guthrie. this has been a hard week around here, but it's nice to have something to smile about this morning. aerosmith here on the plaza. >> a confession, i walked outside a second ago as they were rehearsing to see steve tyler behind a microphotograph and joe perry walking up and down the stage. this is just a destruction. the death toll from sandy has risen to more than 90 people. there's a lot of talk about the situation in new yor
. president obama also cancelling plans to visit ohio and is instead focusing on the storm. he says he's working with the governors and the states at risk the greatest risk of hurricane sandy. he is vowing to eliminate red tape for assistance there. >> my message to the governors as well as the mayors is anything they need we will be there. we are going to cut through red tape. they a we are not going to bog down with a lot of rules. >> the president will hold a rally in orlando before heading back to the white house. mitt romney's campaign has stopped sending fundraising e-mails in several states in sandy's path including new jersey, north carolina virginia, washington, d.c. a whole lot of areas affected by this storm. romney is urging supporters to keep millions at risk in their prayers. >> i know right now some people are nervous about a storm about to hit the coast. our thoughts and prayers are with the people who find themselves in harm's way. >>> the romney campaign will use the campaign to help with relief efforts across the east coast and collect supplies to the storm victims
week about ohio. without autos, without auto manufacturing, it would be very hard to see how the obama team can continue to have excitement and emotional momentum on their side in ohio. it could very well be that the car situation and the help that this administration provided could be the stonewall. however, you look at this momentum, and mike, you follow campaigns. you follow political efforts. and when you have this kind of momentum heading into the final week, it's got to be a good feeling for the romney campaign as they look at the last eight days of where they are. >> you know, usually in campaigns, joe, you know this better than any of us sitting here because you've been on the ballot. you get an indication four, five days out that something has tipped within one campaign or another. and it's set in motion. and so you sort of know who the winner will be. that's not the case this year. i fall back on something that you keep hearing repeatedly when you're out there talking with people, that the president of the united states somehow -- well, we know how -- did himself irreparable
that president obama has in ohio and to a certain degree when it comes to the storm, so there are political ramifications clearly, but also some practical ramifications as well, and as ana marie said a few moments ago, chaos looms, unfortunately. >> anne, in terms of the presidential prospective, president obama just finished talking with craig fugate and the director of fema, and we're waiting for the tape to turn around. we'll get comments in a moment. how much does this help him potentially? this platform for which he is the president of the united states during a really terrible time for about a sixth of the country? >> i think robert is right. he does have a chance to look presidential, although being the president, he gets to look presidential whenever he wants. he has to pay extra mind to the storm and be seen as actually presiding over it, doing his best to make sure he's on top of it. that's a lot to ask somebody a week and a couple of days just before the election. i think that probably the bigger danger, in addition to the ones that the other two mentioned, people simply aren't g
. >> again florida obama could tbhib florida and the race is over. we don't have to worry about ohio and virginia. romney has to win florida and ohio and virginia. north carolina he'll probably win and he's gotta win one of iowa, new hampshire and colorado. >> bill: so the edge right now -- >> electorally -- which is what elects the president. even though i hate the electoral college but it is what it is. >> bill: it is the only count that counts. he's ahead. to the extent that this storm rather locks anything in place -- >> i actually would have thought -- obama wins the popular vote as well. >> bill: hey we're going to come back and talk to chris geidner from "buzzfeed." stick with us. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." i.q. will go way up. how are you ever going to solve the problem if you don't look at all of the pieces? >>tv and radio talk show host stephanie miller rounds out current's morning news block. >>you're welcome current tv audience for the visual candy. >>sharp tongue, quick whit and above all, politically
're in ohio, thank you! thank you so much. >> reporter: as election looms ten days away. friday, mr. obama hit the airwaves, giving a flurry of interviews including mtv where he courted younger voters. >> we grow when everybody's got a shot. that's the america that allowed me to sit in this place and that's the america i want to re-create for the next generation. >> god bless iowa. >> reporter: governor romney spent his day in two battlegrounds, iowa and ohio last night with running mate paul ryan. >> i didn't recognize him with his shirt on. >> reporter: in the waning days, the war of words between campaigns is growing more intense. >> it's time to have a president and vice president who care more about the people than they care about politics. >> reporter: the president seemingly referring to his opponent as a b.s.er to "rolling stone" magazine, questioning why republican colin powell endorsed mr. obama. >> when you have someone of your own race that you're proud of being president of the united states, i applaud him for standing by him. >> reporter: sununu later said he didn't doubt it was
has begun and it has come down to ohio which president obama and mitt romney will visit six times in the last four days of the race. today, president obama will spend the entire day in ohio. but a look at the rest of the campaign schedule makes the buck eye state look like an airline hub for air force one, with ohio stops every day through election day. for his part, mitt romney is not only focusing on ohio but hoping to win over wisconsin, and looking to broaden the battleground map, campaigning in pennsylvania sunday, visiting new hampshire twice. the smallest swing state that may be edging in mr. romney's direction. in these frenetic final days, they're sharpening the closing argument to voters. mr. obama arguing for another four years. >> after four years as president, you know me by now. you may not agree with every decision i've made, you may be frustrated at the pace of change, but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. >> mr. romney calling himself the agent of change. >> this is no time for small measures. this is time for real change. when i am elected presiden
of reach in ohio for governor romney. now it's a very close race. it's anywhere from president obama with a very, very slight lead to just about an even race in ohio. so it's going to come down to the wire. >> and karen, when you break down the ohio numbers further, it's interesting when you look at those who will vote early, the obama folks went about six out of ten early voters, but losing those who say they're going to vote on election day, 44 to 51, romney with 51. what's the story there? is it potentially that the obama campaign is peaking too early with the early vote snerl larly? >> i don't think so. i think that's great spin from the romney campaign. here's the thing to remember, actually. early voters tend to be what we call sporadic voters. it's a different universe than those who actually vote on election day. they're people who don't necessarily vote in any election, presidential, midterm, you know it. so by targeting the sporadic voters to get them out to vote early, you're actually expanding the universe of voters. so some of these polls that are suggesting that some of

john roberts live in kettering, ohio. >> both governor romney, congressman ryan, president obama and the vice president off the road. this was supposed to be a campaign event. they turned it into a relief effort. people were asked as the private admission bring some canned goods, dry goods, water, something like that. a lot of people got that message and showed up. they are collecting quite a few supplies. a lot of people didn't get that message, though, and really came here kind of empty handed. maybe they were still expecting some kind of a campaign event. no formal remarks though governor romney did stand up in front of the crowd, thanked them very much for coming down and said this is a time for the nation to come together to help those in harm's way. here is what the governor said. >> some went to the grocery store i see and purchased some thins that these families will need, and i appreciate your generosity. it's part of the american spirit, the american way. we won't be able to solve all the problems with our effort this morning, though a lot of people will still be lookin
with the storm and all. president obama canceled campaign events today to monday were to the superstorm from the white house. republican challenger mitt romney also canceled campaign plans in ohio today. both are focusing on response and relief efforts. >>> straight ahead at 6:00. >> we continue to follow sandy's aftermath. we'll take you live to ocean city for a look at the damage there when we return.  ananncr: their ads, hopelessly untrue. a west virginia casino launching the biggest ad barrage ever. don't be misled. the washington post says question seven is just... common sense. it'll create 4,000 permanent jobs. and stop maryland from losing millions to other states... every year. that's why business, labor, and teachers all support... question seven. and so does the washington post. vote for question seven. it's just common sense. look, the reason i'm in this race is there are people that are really hurting today in this country. and we face this deficit -- could crush the future generations. and republicans and democrats both love america but we need to have leadership -- l
be a political advantage to governor romney because president obama is busy with those states. he can go out to colorado and minnesota, he can go to michigan, and even ohio is touched by the storm. in some ways, the president is sort of locked into position. >> well, virginia's touched by this. pennsylvania very seriously hit by this. there's a lot of overflow into ohio. there's a serious situation there, but the bigger point is that every minute of television today and yesterday and the day before yesterday, every minute was dedicated to this storm which means it took off of people's minds and took off the front burner obama's bad record with bad results which is why he's losing this election because the american people know we don't need 4 more' years of this. to the degree this takes their minds off that, that is mhanna from heaven for barack obama. >> greta: governor, thank you very much for joining us. >> thank you, greta. >> greta: and now to libya. seven weeks after terrorists attacked our consulate in benghazi, we still do not have the answers. senator lindsey graham is accusing pres
the logistics, for instance, does this storm affect early voting that's going on now in ohio and north carolina and virginia? but a second thing is the larger atmospherics. what is theffect of havin president obama go off the campaign trail back to the white house? the white house just this afternoon released a photo of him meeting in the situation room to get an update on storm damage. it seems to me that has an impact on a race where governor romney has been making some progress in recent days. does this kind of freeze things for where they are now. >> woodruff: that's what i wanted to ask you, susan. does one candidate or another pick up an automatic advantage in a situation like this? >> i don't think there's an automatic advantage until we know what happens with this terrible storm. but if the federal government seems to be reonding inn effective way, i think that's to president obama's benefit. not only does its make his administration look competent but it makes the case for a government role, the role of government has been one of the fundamental debates between these two candidates. if
the campaigns are not still battling below the radar. the latest flashpoint, a romney tv ad running in ohio making this claim about jeep. >> obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. >> reporter: campaigning in ohio with former president clinton, vice president biden blasted the ad as false. >> chrysler has fellow bliged to go public and say there is no truth to this. jeep has no intention of shifting production of its jeep models out of north america to china. >> reporter: and while mitt romney is technically not campaigning today, he's doing a storm relief event, savannah, in the state of ohio. >> all right. chuck, a lot of folks are asking us this morning, is there a possibility with these widespread power outages that could last days, if not weeks, is there a chance the election day itself could be delayed? >> reporter: it's very unlikely. look, the presidential election day is something that is set in the constitution. now, states run elections, and they can decide to postpone, if they wanted to, it's happened before
